Elixir doctests
defmodule AndrewEnum do
@moduledoc """
A reimplementation of the standard `Enum` module.
@doc """
Invokes the given `fun` for each item in the `collection`.
Returns `:ok`.
## Examples
iex> AndrewEnum.each([], fn -> end)
iex> AndrewEnum.each([1, 2, 3], fn(x) -> Process.put(:andrew_enum_test_each, x * 2) end)
iex> Process.get(:andrew_enum_test_each)
Note that the above example as a doctest is a bit contrived, but I
need *some* kind of side effect to assert on for AndrewEnum.each. I
stole the idea of stuffing state into the process dictionary via the
`Process` module from `elixir/enum_test.exs`.
Another note, but this doesn't *completely* replicate Enum.each since
it only accepts a list and not *any* `Enumerable` collection.
def each([], _), do: :ok
def each([head|tail], fun) do
each(tail, fun)
defmodule AndrewEnum.Test do
use ExUnit.Case
doctest AndrewEnum
